My mouth just dropped to my knees when I heard the news on the extra sweet bailout the banks have received at the hands of the outgoing government. Is anyone planning to make noise about this? The utter stupidity or the cunning on the part of this current government is just mind blowing. And when I came to this country, I had the stars in my eyes with the innocent view of an uncorrupt world of the US of A.With attention on bailout debate, the Treasury made changes to the tax law( section 382 of the IRS code), which went unnoticed in the euphoria of the Presidential election.
